Diana Model 24
« on: March 16, 2021, 09:21:49 AM »
New here, so hopefully this is the right place.

I have a Diana Model 24 (circa 95). It was my childhood gun, so it has a lot of sentimental value. However, it has been pretty badly beat up over the years and never really serviced or tuned (or really even cleaned/lubed). Some stock damage, rust, and the trigger can be really hard to pull at times. Also the safety no longer seems to function. It seems to still be fairly accurate when the trigger actually works. I am looking for someone to give it an overhaul so that I can last as a functional gun for another 25 years (and i can pass it down to my kids to use).

Any suggestions on who might be able to do the work? I live in Maine, so someone in the new england area would be optimal. Thanks.

Sorry not in NE, but Motorhead is a very talented fellow in many areas.  I'm sure he could make it look brand new. 
John in Pa does great work, just not sure he wants to get into stock repair and finishing as well as part manufacturing.

Don't think he is in NE but this guy does AMAZING work.  Maybe you could contact him?

Good luck and keep us posted.

Thanks Yogi. I'll reach out to Motorhead. I suppose proximity is not that important if I have to ship it anyways.
